On what Japan can do to get China to play by the rules:
  • There are issues such as trade and competition over leading edge technology. So when it comes to these matters of concern in the international community, and [there are] differences of views, we have to work with the United States based on our relationship of trust. To try to address these concerns, it's very important for us to coordinate between allies and like-minded countries, especially in areas such as cyberattack and security. We need to work in coordination with each other to address these issues involving China.
On the move to subsidize some Japanese companies to relocate supply chains out of China and either back to Japan or southeast Asia:
  • Well, stable supply chains are something that is very important from a security perspective. We're not just trying to cut off China. But we're encouraging companies to relocate supply chains back to Japan. We're supporting them to do so as well as diversifying their supply chains from China to ASEAN countries.

  • As the situation continues to deteriorate in Afghanistan, with even Kabul's international airport, the last hope for U.S. and other foreigners trying to leave the country, being at least partially overrun, we are now hearing that the U.S. Air Force packed one C-17 cargo jet with roughly 800 people and flew them to safety.
  • If these reports, as well as recorded audio, prove to be accurate, it could be a record for an aircraft that serves as the backbone of the Air Force's jet transport fleet.

Taiwan: The unsinkable aircraft carrier sails again? ~ 26 May 2021
https://taiwaninsight.org/2021/05/26/taiwan-the-unsinkable-aircraft-carrier-sails-again/
  • “…If the Seventh Fleet failed to turn up, China would overnight become the dominant power in Asia. America’s allies around the world would know that they could not count on it. Pax Americana would collapse.”
  • 对于美国在朝鲜战争爆发后派第七舰队入侵台湾海峡,麦克阿瑟 (Douglas MacArthur) 曾有过一段明白的说明:台湾是 “一艘永不沉没的航空母舰”,它的战略地位十分重要,可以驻扎10到20个航空大队,是不可多得的空军基地。同时,如果取得台湾作为潜水艇基地,不但可以对前方作战提供短程潜水艇支援,而且可以控制从南方菲律宾到日本、南朝鲜的海运,切断西太平洋所有海上通道。从更深层次看,美国政府控制台湾最大的意图是为了遏制共产主义的“扩张”,从而组成南朝鲜、日本、台湾、菲律宾一线的西太平洋防线,封锁、围堵新生的中华人民共和国。

https://www.defenseone.com/policy/2021/08/trumps-pledge-exit-afghanistan-was-ruse-his-final-secdef-says/184660/
  • Trump’s last acting defense secretary Chris Miller said the president’s public promise to finish withdrawing U.S. forces by May 1, as negotiated with the Taliban, was actually a “play” that masked the Trump administration’s true intentions: to convince Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to quit or accept a bitter power-sharing agreement with the Taliban, and to keep some U.S. troops in Afghanistan for counterrorism missions.
Trump calls on Biden to 'resign in disgrace' over crisis in Afghanistan ~ 17 Aug 2021
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-biden-resign-crisis-afghanistan
  • Trump’s administration had negotiated the terms of the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan by May 1.
  • Former President Donald Trump Sunday (Aug 15) called on President Biden to "resign in disgrace" over his handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal and other issues. "It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen to Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the Border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy," the former president wrote in a statement.

https://www.voachinese.com/a/afghanistan-us-allies-taiwan-20210816/6004115.html
  • 在美国一贯声称会支持的民主社会台湾,人们立即将美国撤军、阿富汗沦陷跟台海安全联系起来。
  • 不少人担心今天阿富汗沦陷,明天台湾会不会被中共占领,而美国是不是也会像放弃阿富汗那样放弃台湾。
  • 美国国务卿布林肯否认美国撤出阿富汗会损害美国的可信度,称 “我们的大多数战略竞争对手希望我们在阿富汗再待一年、五年或十年。但这根本不符合我们的利益。”
  • 前美国国防部负责军力发展的副助理部长科尔比在推特上说,阿富汗局势的发展让人担心中国会攻打台湾,但中国那样做会直接冲撞美国两个世纪来的一个核心利益,并引发海上和空中战争,而美国在那个领域享有优势。

  • Migrant workers employed by Top Glove Corp Bhd are increasingly becoming livid as life is not getting any better for them despite their employer being investigated by the authorities for multiple breach of laws.
  • The newly relocated staff in Westlite (hostel) are saying that they may boycott the company by not going to work if their concerns such as forced relocation and poor accommodation quality are not addressed.

China’s economic miracle is a myth made by exploitation of migrant workers ~ 5 Sep 2021
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHB-dBExB44
  • This is a labor market in a small town where more than 1,000 migrant workers gather every morning at 5:30 a.m. to look for job opportunities. Since last year, due to the trade war between the United States and China and the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies have shut down production, causing a large number of farmworkers to lose their jobs.
  • In particular, the strict lockdown system that followed the outbreak has caused a lot of inconvenience to their lives. Those who lost their jobs could not afford the high cost of living in the cities, so they returned to their hometowns to find odd or part-time jobs in the surrounding areas. Unfortunately, only about half of them are able to find a job every day.

  • 这一披露虽然不能就此断定造成新型冠状病毒肺炎(COVID-19)全球大流行的冠状病毒(SARS-CoV-2)来自于实验室泄露,但它给新冠病毒可能来自于实验室的说法提供了新的有力线索,同时反驳了中国官方的说法。中国国家卫健委副主任曾益新此前曾断然否定武汉病毒研究所曾进行过冠状病毒增益功能的研究。

Better data on Ivermectin is finally on its way ~ 8 Sep 2021
https://www.wired.com/story/better-data-on-ivermectin-is-finally-on-its-way/
  • Ivermectin prescriptions spiked to nearly 100,000 in August, 20 times their pre-pandemic level.
  • At his online talk, put on by the National Institutes of Health, Mills’ slides told the tale: A relatively safe, familiar, cheap drug reduced the relative risk of mild Covid getting worse by nearly 30%.
  • The drug is fluvoxamine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor — an antidepressant. (It’s also an anti-inflammatory, and inflammation and an overreacting immune system are hallmarks of serious Covid infection, so that might be why it seems to help).
  • Get a bunch of people with Covid and randomize them into two groups; 739 get fluvoxamine and 733 get a placebo. Only 77 of the fluvoxamine-takers end up in the hospital; 109 of the placebo group do. This is exciting.

  • An in vitro trial has shown Ivermectin reduces the number of cell-associated viral RNA by 99.8 % in 24 hours.
  • An in vitro study is when they study cells in a laboratory and not in a living organism.
  • Clinical trials have been conducted on people to test how well ivermectin works against COVID-19. This is in vivo testing.
  • Currently there is a low level of certainty whether Ivermectin helps treat COVID-19 and more studies are needed.
  • Ivermectin tablets are currently a FDA approved medicine for treatment of intestinal parasitic worms, parasitic diseases, Strongyloides stercoralis and Onchocerca volvulus.
  • Invermectin has been established as safe for use in humans, but only at the recommended dosage level.

India's COVID cases dip sharply but fears of resurgence surface

Experts warn of another 'explosion' of infections as crowds hit streets

Kiran Sharma, Nikkei staff writer
June 18, 2021 13:33 JST

New Delhi -- With India witnessing a significant drop in COVID-19 infections and authorities easing lockdown restrictions, people have started thronging markets and train stations. Many can be seen defying social distancing rules, triggering fears that the country could face another serious wave of the pandemic.

From a high of over 400,000 daily cases in early May, when a deadly second wave of the pandemic ravaged the country, new infections have fallen below 100,000 per day recently. On Thursday, India posted 67,208 new cases, bringing its total caseload to 29.7 million with 381,903 fatalities.

New Delhi, the capital, was among the worst-hit regions in the country during the April to May surge. There were severe shortages of oxygen, medicines and hospital beds. With case numbers dropping, the city has gradually begun relaxing lockdown restrictions, allowing shopping malls and markets to reopen, and letting Metro trains and restaurants operate at 50% capacity.

Soon after the curbs were eased, video footage appeared on social media showing huge crowds of shoppers in Delhi and long lines of people waiting outside of Metro stations.

"Delhi's top mall saw a footfall of 19,000 people... as soon as it reopened," Ambrish Mithal, a senior doctor at a Max Healthcare hospital in New Delhi, tweeted on Tuesday, without naming the shopping complex. "Have we gone totally mad? "Wait for COVID-19 to explode again -- and blame the [government], hospitals [and the] country."

Arvinder Singh Soin, chairman of the Medanta Institute of Liver Transplantation and Regenerative Medicine, also took to Twitter to express his concern. "Delhi ought to have unlocked far more scientifically. We are inviting trouble!"

India's health ministry has advised people not to crowd markets and other places where movement restrictions have been lifted, to maintain social distancing and to wear face masks properly. "As we are opening up, our responsibility, our discipline become very, very important," V.K. Paul, the ministry's top adviser on COVID-19, told a media briefing.

Authorities in the capital, however, are already bracing for the possibility of another resurgence in cases, citing the example of the U.K., which is currently facing a potential third wave driven by the delta variant, which was first detected in India.

On Wednesday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal unveiled an action plan to "save the city" if another devastating wave strikes. The plan includes augmenting oxygen supplies and training 5,000 youth as health assistants to help doctors and nurses so that there is sufficient medical staff to handle the situation. "These youth will be trained in first aid, patient care, administering vaccinations, et cetera," Kejriwal said.

Many other states, including western Gujarat and southern Kerala are working to strengthen their health care infrastructure and vaccination drives to minimize the impact of a likely third wave that experts believe could hit the country in the next few months.

"Many people on the streets can be seen not following social distancing and wearing masks on their chins instead of covering their mouth and nose," New Delhi-based health columnist Archana Jyoti pointed out.

"Rapid vaccination against the virus appears to be the only solution in efforts to prevent another resurgence, but the coverage so far hasn't been encouraging" as only 5% of the country's adult population has been fully immunized, she told Nikkei Asia. In the U.K., by comparison, over half the adult population has reportedly been fully immunized.

As of June 15, India, which launched its inoculation drive in mid-January, had administered the first dose of the mandatory two-shot vaccine to 211.4 million people, while 49.1 million had received both doses by then. Given that the country has about 940 million people over the age of 18 eligible for vaccination, it needs to step up the effort in a big way.

The country is using two locally made vaccines, Covishield, supplied elsewhere under the AstraZeneca label and manufactured by the Serum Institute of India, and Covaxin, developed by Indian drugmaker Bharat Biotech. Russia's Sputnik V vaccine has also been approved for emergency use.

Starting June 21, all eligible Indian citizens can receive free vaccinations at government facilities nationwide.

"The pace of vaccination should see renewed energy from next week onward," Paul, the health ministry's adviser, said. "We look forward to [this] new phase in vaccine implementation [and] vaccine scaling up."

Coronavirus: What's happening in Canada and around the world on Wednesday ~ 15 Sep 2021
https://www.cbc.ca/amp/1.6176279
  • The U.S. government will spend US$470 million to learn more about long COVID-19, its causes and potential treatments.
  • The NIH announced the plans on Sep 15 with a grant awarded to New York University and a goal of enrolling up to 40,000 adults and children nationwide. The effort, dubbed "Recover", will involve researchers at more than 30 U.S. institutions.
  • It's estimated 10 to 30% of people infected with COVID-19 may develop persistent, new or recurring symptoms that can last months or perhaps years.
  • Long COVID is an umbrella term for symptoms that linger, recur and show up for the first time four weeks or more after an initial infection.
  • It also includes heart inflammation and multisystem inflammatory syndrome, a rare but serious condition that can occur in children after a COVID-19 infection. Pain, headaches, fatigue, brain fog, shortness of breath, anxiety, depression, chronic coughs and sleep problems are among the reported symptoms of long COVID. Possible causes include the virus lingering in tissues and organs or overstimulating the immune system.

Singapore planning for possibility that Covid-19 becomes endemic here: Lawrence Wong ~ 28 May 2021
https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/health/singapore-planning-for-possibility-that-covid-19-becomes-endemic-here
  • Endemic Covid-19; expect to get infected sooner or later.
  • There will be symptomatic cases which get severe disease and pass away.
  • However, these cases will be uncommon.
The coronavirus is here to stay — here’s what that means ~ 16 Feb 2021

  • Of the new cases, 838 are in the community, 96 in migrant worker dormitories and the other one is an imported case.
  • Among the new cases, 241 are seniors who are above 60 years old. Total COVID-19 cases in the city-state at 75,783.
  • As of Sep 16, 82% of the local population has completed 2 doses of COVID-19 vaccines, and 84% has received at least 1 dose.

  • With daily cases fast approaching 1,000 in Singapore, it's the first time in this Covid-19 pandemic that the majority of new infections are from the community and not from the migrant worker dormitories. On Thursday (Sept 16), Singapore reported 803 cases in the community.
Home recovery for fully vaccinated COVID patients aged 12-69: MOH ~ 17 Sep 2021
https://sg.news.yahoo.com/home-recovery-vaccinated-covid-patients-aged-12-69-moh-094923623.html
  • Expanding the suitability criteria: From Saturday (Sep 18), home recovery will be the default care management model for fully vaccinated COVID-19 patients aged 12-69, who have no severe co-morbidities or illnesses, said the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Friday (Sep 17). Only those aged up to 50 were eligible previously.
  • These patients must be able to self-isolate in a room, preferably with an attached bathroom. In addition, they must not have household members who are more than 80 years old or are in one of the vulnerable groups – for example, pregnant individuals or those with weakened immune response.
  • Those who test positive for COVID and meet the above criteria can begin their home recovery immediately, without having to be conveyed to a hospital or community care facility.
Singapore's COVID-19 reproduction number is above 1. What does this mean and should we be concerned? ~ 17 Sep 2021
https://www.channelnewsasia.com/singapore/covid-19-r-number-reproduction-new-cases-2181166
  • Lawrence Wong: "What is of concern to us is not just the absolute number of cases, but the rate at which the virus is spreading. And that’s the reproduction rate, or R," he said, warning about the likely "exponential rise" in cases.
  • "Currently, the R is more than 1. Cases are doubling every week. And if we continue on this trajectory of infection, it means we could have 1,000 (daily) cases in two weeks, or possibly 2,000 (daily) cases in a month."
  • Mr Wong said it was important to bring the R number down and avoid a large number of cases, as this would translate to a "sizeable" number of people getting seriously ill and eventually dying.
askST: If Singapore treats Covid-19 as endemic, can we view it like the common flu? ~ 7 Sep 2021
https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/health/if-singapore-treats-covid-19-as-endemic-can-we-view-it-like-the-common-flu
  • Q: If we treat Covid-19 as endemic, can it be thought of in the same way as the common flu?
  • A: No, it cannot. The knowledge of influenza - for instance, that flu viruses constantly change, so yearly vaccinations are recommended - has been built up over decades of scientific research.
  • "Whether Covid-19 will also become a seasonal human coronavirus, we don't know."
  • "It will possibly take a long time for us to observe the evolutions, to understand how this virus finally settles down in the human environment."

  • The Indian Embassy here on Tuesday (Apr 27) advised its citizens to avoid travelling to Nepal for the purposes of onward journeys to third countries after Kathmandu banned all foreign nationals from using the Himalayan nation as a transit point as part of its effort to combat the surge in the coronavirus cases.
  • The order comes at a time when a number of countries like the UK, Canada, Australia and UAE have suspended flights to India. While some other countries have restrictions for travellers from India.
  • Due to this, perhaps, some travellers from India are flying to Kathmandu to take connecting flights to other countries.
  • To be sure, there are no travel restrictions on Indians traveling to Kathmandu with Nepal as their final destination. However, all pandemic-time requirements need to be met by such travellers.
Travel ban loophole? Packages offering access to Singapore from India via third country spark Covid-19 concerns

26 April 2021
By Rainer Cheung@asiaone.com

On any other day, a travel package offering people in India a trip to Singapore via Sri Lanka might not warrant a second look. But in the face of the recent travel ban that bars entry to those who have been in India in the past 14 days, these packages have become a cause of concern for locals.

A photo of a travel agency offering packages that connected India to Singapore via Sri Lanka was posted onto HardwareZone on Sunday night (April 25), immediately causing netizens to wonder if such a package was legal.

Meanwhile, a screenshot of an Indian national being offered assistance in entering Singapore via Sri Lanka was uploaded onto Facebook last Friday. The man was told that as long as he obtained a visa and stayed in Sri Lanka for two weeks, he would be allowed into Singapore. Another user was seen suggesting Nepal as another intermediary country.

Travel agency in Sri Lanka offers package for India-Sri Lanka-Singapore route



Former NMP Calvin Cheng similarly suggested taking a trip to the US and spending two weeks there as they do not have a mandatory quarantine, before flying to Singapore and serving a 14-day quarantine in a dedicated facility.

Calvin Cheng:

If you are a long-term pass holder of any nationality, now stranded in India, one of the easiest ways back to Singapore is through the US. For now.

Depending on your nationality, you might need a visa, but the US has no travel ban on flights originating from India, nor any quarantine policy. Take it as a holiday in the US.

You will then have to stay in the US for at least 14 days before applying for permission to return, like any Singapore long-term pass holder in the US would. Since there is no quarantine in the US, these 14 days should pass easily.

On your return, you would then quarantine for 14 days in a dedicated facility in Singapore, just like any other arrival from the US.


These posts sparked a discussion that a "loophole" was being exploited.

"All these people who exploit the loophole to enter the country should be banned permanently," an angry netizen wrote.

Others lambasted Cheng for "undermining the measures" put in place by the government and tagged several government bodies, such as the Ministry of Manpower and the Ministry of Health, for feedback.



In response to media queries regarding Indian nationals using the aforementioned methods to get past the border restrictions, Health Minister Ong Ye Kung said the travel ban is not based on nationality.

"I think, as a matter of general infection control knowledge, regardless of your nationality, if you stay in a place long enough, you assume the risk profile of that place," he explained.

"You may be from another country, but once you stay in a new country for a while, you assume a new risk profile."

He added that by moving from a high-risk country to a lower-risk country and remaining Covid-negative before coming to Singapore, these people have already taken measures to lower the risk of virus transmission.

As of last Saturday (apr 24), all long-term pass holders and short-term visitors who have been to India within the last 14 days have been barred entry into Singapore. This includes visitors who transit in India, even if they had obtained prior approval for entry into Singapore.

This travel ban follows a massive surge in coronavirus cases in India that has seen hospitals across the country running out of beds and oxygen.

Noting that many arrivals from India work in the construction, marine and process sectors and live in dormitories, Lawrence Wong, the co-chair of the Covid-19 multi-ministry task force, said a new strain may get leaked into the dormitories, resulting in new clusters emerging again, hence the decision.

The "temporary freeze" on arrivals from India will give Singapore time to monitor the situation and better understand the "new variants that are there".

https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/health/we-cannot-rely-solely-on-vaccines-to-fight-covid-19-delta-variant-says-director-of
  • Overseas research has found that the Delta strain has had an R0 of 5 to 8, meaning that one person typically transmits the virus to between five and eight other people. This is around the same as chickenpox.
  • In Singapore, the R0 is estimated at 1.45, taking into account existing safe management measures, Prof Leo said, adding that this figure is significant.
  • The Delta variant is estimated to be more than two times as contagious as the original wild type. This means the R0 would increase significantly if safe distancing measures were removed.

"The elephant in the room"

How did Beijing dig a massive hole for itself? And how Australia could shrug off China... ~ 5 Oct 2021
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYaA69EvHGw
  • A series of political disputes have strained the relationship between China and Australia. This relationship has further deteriorated with the establishment of AUKUS, a new alliance between Australia, the UK, and the US.
  • It has been more than a year since China began imposing tariffs, bonds, and other punitive measures against different imports from Australia, attempting to hurt its economy and force its concessions.
  • However, when we look at the trade numbers between the two countries in the past year, we find that the CCP itself almost entirely swallows the bitter consequences of its crackdown on Australia.
  • Therefore, some commentators have said that the CCP has perfectly illustrated the act of shooting oneself in the foot.

Power outages in China means supply chain problems just went from bad to worse ~ 4 Oct 2021

  • Power outages across China and skyrocketing energy prices means the problems in the global supply chain are about to get much worse.
  • With coal prices doubling and an embargo on Australian coal imports, China is unable to power the global manufacturing engine it has become.
  • This means problems for everything from Aluminum to fertilizer to semi-conductors.

  • At least 20 of China's 31 provincial-level jurisdictions are rationing electricity to play catch-up, after being unable to meet the central government's energy consumption and carbon emissions targets to fulfil the country's climate commitments earlier this year.
  • Some 30 listed companies on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges warn the power cuts have negatively impacted their production and profits.

The vaccine enters your body, does its thing, and is then destroyed. It does not alter your DNA.
The technology used in the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines is a way of giving your cells temporary instructions to make the coronavirus spike protein.
This protein is found on the surface of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
The vaccines teach your immune system to protect you if you ever encounter the virus.

Passing of Dr Raymond Yuan due to Covid-19

By David Lam
October 11th, 2021

我的好友星加坡醫生, 袁泉芳醫生 (Dr. Raymond Yuen) 數天前、不幸感染冠狀病毒, 因病情急轉, 昨天離世。 今天晚上火葬, 及網上zoom追思紀念。

據了解, 他於4/10確診COVID -19 後在家居隔離, 後來病情轉差入院, 8/10 院方通知家人可能要見最後一面, 血壓很低 血裡面已經全部有病毒, 心律不正常, 只能够靠呼機维持。

80年代我們在教會一起成長, 及後移民星加坡。昨天傳來不幸的消息, 使我落淚。

星加坡政府總理李顯龍昨天宣佈, 放棄清零, 採取與病毒共存。

全民疫苗打針, 當成普通傷風感冒一樣。但看來星加坡疫情急轉直下, 已經有很多人感染。

各位海外、台灣、及星加坡朋友, 大家要份外小心小心, 不要掉以輕心, 輕視疫情, 病毒會奪取我們的生命。

红蚂蚁: 不准堂食和进入商城,“歧视” 不打疫苗者有理还是无理?
程英生  发布: 2021年10月11日 16:15 更新: 2021年10月11日 16:39

软硬兼施的时候了

政府日前宣布,从10月13日起,未接种疫苗的人不能堂食和进入商场与景点。这个限制,原因无他,就是为了保命并减低医护人员的负担。

消息传出,一些市民的直观是:

软的不行,现在来硬的了。

过去一年,政府对民众好言相劝,要他们打疫苗保健康;领导人不停的呼吁,媒体广告不断的宣传,还安排医护人员上门为长者打针,该做的都做了,只差还没“硬来”,未强制接种疫苗,所顾虑的是一大串道德的问题。

在美国等发达国家,政府苦口婆心一年,有了收效,但临门一脚,仍未把球踢进去,接种者达人口三分之二,然后就推不动了,因此很难全面解禁,恢复正常生活。

在美国,拜登总统说,政府一直很有耐心,但这个耐心已经逐渐消失了。

他上个月下达一系列政令,要求下列人群接种疫苗和经常接受检验,不然就得离职:美国政府雇员、医疗机构人员,以及百人以上规模企业的雇员。

这个世界民主先出手,将人权和自由搁置一边,在国际间引起很多注意。人们预测说,美国这么敢敢硬来,其他国家迟早会仿效追随。

在我们岛上,政府一直显得很有耐心,不强制不强求,而一般民众也很配合,至今只剩15%的市民未打针。

不过,即使是超过80%接种了,我们回归正常的大计还是无法全面推行,官民都不忍看到每天的那些死亡数字。这一来,我们就进退两难了。基于这个考虑,政府就来点硬的,虽然出手不像美国那么重。

商场和食肆,都是日常生活场所,未接种者不得其门而入,自然会让人不爽,觉得这是“歧视”。

据媒体报道,许多不满限制令的未接种者,正通过社交媒体的朋友圈,互通声息,互相打气,表明要坚持到底,并且狠狠骂了政府一通。

决心不打疫苗者,原因不一。有些是健康问题,担心自己承受不了疫苗带来的不良反应。他们之中,有些觉得自己很老了,时日原本就不多了。对这些人士,一般民众寄以较多的同情。

另一些人士则是基于某种信仰或意识,坚决不与疫苗沾边。他们引来的是批评多过同情。人们联想到美国反科学和反常识的某些信仰者,也让人想到网上大量流传的妖言惑众的信息。

一般批评者说,不打疫苗的人坚持信仰、听天由命,这是他们的个人自由好选择,不过他们也不应该对他人的生计和生命构成威胁,让国家还一直处于锁国封城的境地。

民间批评者这么骂,而政府则是客气的多,只是轻轻诉说生命的可贵,也说明确保医疗体系运作正常的必要。

对于建国一代和立国一代,无论打不打疫苗,领导人向来保持一股敬意,言辞和缓谨慎,不想责备和怪罪。

毕竟,尊老是传统美德,而且在政治上也很有敬老的必要。

Coronavirus: What's happening in Canada and around the world ~ 15 Sep 2021
https://www.cbc.ca/amp/1.6176279
  • Researchers in the U.S. receive grants to study so-called 'long COVID' and potential treatments.
  • The U.S. government will spend US$470 million to learn more about long COVID-19, its causes and potential treatments.
  • The NIH announced the plans on Sep 15 with a grant awarded to New York University and a goal of enrolling up to 40,000 adults and children nationwide. The effort, dubbed "Recover", will involve researchers at more than 30 U.S. institutions.
  • It's estimated 10 to 30% of people infected with COVID-19 may develop persistent, new or recurring symptoms that can last months or perhaps years.
  • Long COVID is an umbrella term for symptoms that linger, recur and show up for the first time four weeks or more after an initial infection.
  • It also includes heart inflammation and multisystem inflammatory syndrome, a rare but serious condition that can occur in children after a COVID-19 infection. Pain, headaches, fatigue, brain fog, shortness of breath, anxiety, depression, chronic coughs and sleep problems are among the reported symptoms of long COVID. Possible causes include the virus lingering in tissues and organs or overstimulating the immune system.
Pharma companies and the covid-19 vaccines crisis ~ September 2021
https://www.amnesty.org/en/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/POL4046212021ENGLISH.pdf
  • The top ten largest institutional investors are mainly US-based asset managers and banks - which have combined holdings worth more than US$250 billion in the vaccine developers. The single largest is Vanguard Group Inc. which holds shares worth a total of more than US$66 billion in AstraZeneca, Johnson and Johnson, Moderna, Novavax and Pfizer. BlackRock Inc has more than US$62 billion invested in all six featured companies. These investors and asset managers must assess the extent to which these companies are causing or contributing to human rights harm through their approach to the crisis. Having identified adverse impacts, they should then engage with these companies and exert their leverage to mitigate the impacts.
  • In the context of the Covid-19 vaccines, the leverage that this small group of institutional investors has is significant. While none of the top ten institutional investors own or manage more than 10% in any one company, the size of their joint holdings, as well as their total portfolios across the whole sector, give them a significant role in the vaccine developers. Combined, for instance, they own and manage 23.5% of AstraZeneca’s shares, 27.9% of Johnson and Johnson’s, 24.7% of Moderna’s, 17.4% of Novavax’s, and 32.7% of Pfizer’s.

  • Maddie’s condition did not improve, but worsened over the next two-and-a-half months, as she developed more symptoms, including not being able to walk; unable to feel below her waist; memory loss; loss of bladder control; the inability to swallow food and liquids, thus requiring a nasogastric feeding tube; and fainting or seizing 10 or more times per day.
  • For the past five months, de Garay said her daughter was taken to the emergency room nine times and “hospitalized three times for a total of two months in the hospital.” Maddie has also visited various specialists and received multiple therapies.

U.S.-funded experiment in China posed biosafety risks but did not cause Covid-19 pandemic, scientists say.

Sharon Lerner, Mara Hvistendahl, Maia Hibbett
September 10 2021, 9:03 a.m.

DOCUMENTS OBTAINED BY The Intercept contain new evidence that the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the nearby Wuhan University Center for Animal Experiment, along with their collaborator, the U.S.-based nonprofit EcoHealth Alliance, have engaged in what the U.S. government defines as “gain-of-function research of concern,” intentionally making viruses more pathogenic or transmissible in order to study them, despite stipulations from a U.S. funding agency that the money not be used for that purpose.

Grant money for the controversial experiment came from the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is headed by Anthony Fauci. The award to EcoHealth Alliance, a research organization which studies the spread of viruses from animals to humans, included subawards to Wuhan Institute of Virology and East China Normal University. The principal investigator on the grant is EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak, who has been a key voice in the search for Covid-19’s origins.

Scientists unanimously told The Intercept that the experiment, which involved infecting genetically engineered mice with “chimeric” hybrid viruses, could not have directly sparked the pandemic. None of the viruses listed in the write-ups of the experiment are related to the virus that causes Covid-19, SARS-CoV-2, closely enough to have evolved into it. Still, several scientists said the new information, which the NIH released after it was sued by The Intercept, points to biosafety concerns, highlighting a general lack of oversight for research on pathogens and raising questions about what other information has not been publicly disclosed.

“As a virologist, I personally think creating chimeras of SARS-related bat coronaviruses that are thought to pose high risk to humans entails unacceptable risks,” said Jesse Bloom, who studies the evolution of viruses at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, is a disease caused, like Covid-19, by an airborne coronavirus.

The experiment also raises questions about assertions from Fauci and NIH Director Francis Collins that NIH-funded projects at the Wuhan Institute of Virology did not involve gain-of-function research. In May, Fauci testified before Congress: “The NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.” The documents do not establish whether Fauci was directly aware of the work.

Scientists working under a 2014 NIH grant to the EcoHealth Alliance to study bat coronaviruses combined the genetic material from a “parent” coronavirus known as WIV1 with other viruses. They twice submitted summaries of their work that showed that, when in the lungs of genetically engineered mice, three altered bat coronaviruses at times reproduced far more quickly than the original virus on which they were based. The altered viruses were also somewhat more pathogenic, with one causing the mice to lose significant weight. The researchers reported, “These results demonstrate varying pathogenicity of SARSr-CoVs with different spike proteins in humanized mice.”

But the terms of the grant clearly stipulated that the funding could not be used for gain-of-function experiments. The grant conditions also required the researchers to immediately report potentially dangerous results and stop their experiments pending further NIH review. According to both the EcoHealth Alliance and NIH, the results were reported to the agency, but NIH determined that rules designed to restrict gain-of-function research did not apply.

The Intercept consulted 11 scientists who are virologists or work in adjacent fields and hold a range of views on both the ethics of gain-of-function research and the Covid-19 origins search. Seven said that the work appears to meet NIH’s criteria for gain-of-function research.

One said that the experiment “absolutely does not meet the bar” for gain-of-function research. “You can’t predict that these viruses would be more pathogenic, or even pathogenic at all in people,” said Angela Rasmussen, a virologist with the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization at the University of Saskatchewan. “They also did not study transmissibility at all in these experiments,” meaning that the scientists did not look at whether the viruses could spread across a population.

Three experts said that, while they did not have enough knowledge of U.S. policies to comment on whether the research met NIH criteria, the experiment involving humanized mice was unnecessarily risky.

One virologist, Vincent Racaniello, a professor of microbiology and immunology at Columbia University, said while he considered the mouse experiment described in the document to clearly fall into the gain-of-function category, he didn’t see it as problematic. “You can do some kinds of gain-of-function research that then has unforeseen consequences and may be a problem, but that’s not the case here,” said Racaniello.

Robert Kessler, communications manager for EcoHealth Alliance, denied that the work on the humanized mice met the definition of gain-of-function research. Kessler insisted that bat viruses are not potential pandemic pathogens because, he said, “a bat virus is not known to be able to infect humans.” The proposal justified the work on WIV1 by explaining that it is “not a select agent” — referring to a list of closely monitored toxins and biological agents that have the potential to pose a severe threat to public health — and “has not been shown to cause human infections, and has not been shown to be transmissible between humans.”



But the group’s bat coronavirus research was focused on the very threat that bat viruses pose to people. Kessler did acknowledge that, while the original bat coronavirus in the experiment did not spread among humans, the research was designed to gauge how bat coronaviruses could evolve to infect humans.

All but two of the scientists consulted agreed that, whatever title it is given, the newly public experiment raised serious concerns about the safety and oversight of federally funded research. “In my point of view, the debate about the definition of ‘gain-of-function’ has been too much focused on technical aspects,” said Jacques van Helden, a professor of bioinformatics at Aix-Marseille Université. “The real question is whether or not research has the potential to create or facilitate the selection of viruses that might infect humans.” The experiments described in the proposal clearly do have that potential, he said.

NIH spokesperson Elizabeth Deatrick said that the agency had considered the research — and decided not to restrict it under its own rules. “In 2016, NIAID determined that the work was not subject to the Gain-of-Function (GoF) research funding pause and the subsequent HHS P3CO Framework,” Deatrick wrote, referring to criteria put in place in 2017 to guide the agency’s funding decisions about research that involves, or is reasonably anticipated to involve, potential pandemic pathogens.

Republican members of Congress have alleged, without sufficient evidence, that gain-of-function research in Wuhan sparked the coronavirus pandemic. As part of an inquiry into the origins of the pandemic, they have twice grilled Fauci in Congress on his role as NIAID director.

In a heated exchange in July, Republican Sen. Rand Paul accused Fauci of lying when he claimed that NIH did not fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Experts now say that the documents support the contention that NIH funded gain-of-function work, though not in the specific instance where Paul alleged it. “There’s no question,” said Racaniello, of Columbia University, who pointed to the decreased weight of the mice infected with the chimeric viruses that was described in the research summaries sent to NIH. “From the weight loss, it’s gain of function. Tony Fauci is wrong saying it’s not.”

But the documents do not prove Paul’s claim that Fauci was lying, as they do not make clear whether Fauci read them. Nor do they in any way support Paul’s allegation that Fauci was “responsible for 4 million people around the world dying of a pandemic” — or that anyone intentionally caused Covid-19. What is clear is that program officers at NIAID, the agency that Fauci oversees, did know about the research.

A paragraph describing the research, as well as two figures illustrating its results, were included in both a 2018 progress report on the bat coronavirus grant and an application for its 2019 renewal. And NIH confirmed that it reviewed them.

“NIH has never approved any research that would make a coronavirus more dangerous to humans,” the agency said in a statement, echoing remarks by Collins, the NIH director, posted to its website in May. “The research we supported in China, where coronaviruses are prevalent, sought to understand the behavior of coronaviruses circulating in bats that have the potential to cause widespread disease.” Similar research funded by NIH had aided in the development of vaccines against the coronavirus, the statement continued.

The White House did not respond to questions about the research.

Shifting Definitions, Growing Viral Load

The humanized mouse experiment fits with the overall goal of the $3.1 million grant, which was titled “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence” and aimed at preventing a pandemic by predicting the circumstances under which a bat coronavirus could evolve to infect humans. The researchers took an ambitious three-pronged approach: screening people with high exposure to wildlife, mathematical modeling, and lab experiments on viruses. Peter Daszak, the EcoHealth Alliance president, has worked closely with scientists in China for years, and roughly $750,000 of the grant was allocated for the Wuhan Institute of Virology. An additional nearly $300,000 went to East China Normal University, where researchers did field sampling.

In a 2005 paper, Daszak’s team showed that the first SARS virus originated in bats. Middle East respiratory syndrome, or MERS, is caused by a coronavirus that emerged in 2012 and also believed to come from bats, which are now a prime target for virologists trying to understand and combat emerging diseases. Daszak has long maintained that his research is critical to preventing outbreaks.

But the research on the bat viruses in Wuhan showed that infecting live animals with altered viruses can have unpredictable consequences. A report to NIH on the project’s progress in the year ending in May 2018 described scientists creating new coronaviruses by changing parts of WIV1 and exposing genetically engineered mice to the new chimeric viruses. Research published in 2017 in the journal PLOS Pathogen showed that, in cells in a laboratory, similar chimeric viruses reproduced less effectively than the original. NIH cited that research as one of the reasons the moratorium on gain-of-function research of concern didn’t apply to this experiment. “It was a loss of function, not a gain of function,” the email from NIH explained. (NIH also pointed out that the changes to the chimeric viruses “would not be anticipated to increase virulence or transmissibility in humans.”)

Inside the lungs of the humanized mice, however, the novel viruses appear to have reproduced far more quickly than the original virus that was used to create them, according to a bar graph shown in the documents. The viral load in the lung tissue of the mice was, at certain points, up to 10,000 times higher in the mice infected with the altered viruses than in those infected with WIV1. According to Deatrick, the NIH spokesperson, the difference in the rates of viral reproduction — which were particularly pronounced two and four days after the mice were infected with the virus — didn’t amount to gain of function because, by the end of the experiment, the amount of virus produced by the parent and chimeric strains evened out. “Viral titers were equivalent by the end of the experimental time-course,” Deatrick wrote. The email also said, “NIH supports this type of research to better understand the characteristics of animal viruses that have the potential to spill over to humans and cause widespread disease.”

Scientists The Intercept consulted expressed differing views on whether the increase in viral load could be translated to an increase in transmissibility, which relies on the virus’s ability to replicate. To some, the jump in viral load indicated that the modified RNA virus could replicate far more rapidly than the original in the lungs of the mice, likely leading to increased pathogenicity and spread. Rasmussen, of the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization, pointed out that viral load is not identical to reproduction rate, noting: “This shows the chimeric viruses replicated a little faster, but that tells us exactly nothing about transmissibility. Furthermore, WIV1 caught up by the end of the experiment. We see differences in the rate of viral replication all the time, but it is often not directly correlated with pathogenicity.”

Another figure in the documents suggests that at least one of the altered viruses not only enhanced viral reproduction, but also caused the humanized mice to lose more weight than those exposed to the original virus — a measure of the severity of illness.

NIH requires the increase in viral reproduction to be immediately reported, according to a note in the Notice of Award the agency issued in July 2016. “No funds are provided and no funds can be used to support gain-of-function research covered under the October 17, 2014 White House Announcement,” the note said. If any new MERS-like or SARS-like chimeras show “enhanced virus growth greater than 1 log over the parental backbone strain,” the note continued, the researchers were instructed to stop all experiments with the viruses and send the data to NIAID grant specialists, as well as to the Wuhan Institute of Virology biosafety committee. The enhanced growth of the chimeric coronaviruses in the humanized mice was, at one point, up to 4 log greater — or 10,000 times — the rate of the original virus. But there are no indications the research was stopped.

In fact, the bat coronavirus grant was renewed for a five-year period in 2019, although the Trump administration suspended funding in April 2020 amid the Covid-19 pandemic and spiraling concerns about its origins. (Funding was later reinstated but under strict conditions that Daszak said were impossible for his group to meet.)

Kessler, EcoHealth Alliance’s communications manager, also pointed to the fact that the grant was renewed in 2019 — after EcoHealth Alliance had twice submitted documents detailing the experiment — as evidence that the organization did nothing wrong. “If there had been any violations, they would not have done so,” he said.

Long History of Controversy

The practice of making chimeric viruses in order to study how they might become more contagious was under scrutiny long before the pandemic. Proponents of such gain-of-function research argued that it can help virologists better understand and defend against natural outbreaks. But critics said that they were unreasonably dangerous.

In October 2014, the federal government put a moratorium on funding gain-of-function research on potential pandemic pathogens that could be “reasonably anticipated” to lead to spread in humans, as outlined in a 2017 guidance from the Department of Health and Human Services. In December 2017, the moratorium was lifted and replaced with new guidelines for oversight of research using potential pandemic pathogens. The grantees reported that the humanized mouse experiment was done between June 2017 and May 2018. Gain-of-function research was thrust into the spotlight again in 2020, amid speculation that the Wuhan Institute of Virology had conducted such research and that it was somehow linked to the pandemic.

While the new information about the research on humanized mice does not provide the “smoking gun” for proponents of what has become known as the “lab leak theory,” it lends the hypothesis credence, according to Stuart Newman, a professor of cell biology who directs the developmental biology laboratory at New York Medical College. “Making chimeric coronaviruses, mixing and matching RBDs [a part of the virus that allows it to attach to receptors] and spike proteins is exactly the scenario imagined by many lab-leak scenario proponents,” said Newman. “The fact that this was an established research paradigm in the Wuhan lab … definitely makes the laboratory origin more plausible.”

The documents about the research were released by NIH after The Intercept submitted a Freedom of Information Act request in September 2020, later suing to have it fulfilled. The request sought copies of these and other grant proposals that Daszak submitted to the agency, as well as the agency’s communications about the proposals. NIH originally denied The Intercept’s request on the grounds that releasing Daszak’s proposals would undermine an ongoing investigation. Counsel for the agency later admitted that NIH had not reviewed many of the records before making that assertion.

“The contents of the grants raise serious questions about the review processes and oversight relating to risky pathogen research,” said Alina Chan, a Boston-based scientist and co-author of the upcoming book “Viral: The Search for the Origin of Covid-19.” The new information in the documents warrants further inquiry into whether researchers may have omitted information about other concerning experiments, she said. “The question is: What else did they do in more recent years that we’re not aware of?”

  • The National Institutes of Health earmarked $600,000 for the Wuhan Institute of Virology over a five-year period to study whether bat coronaviruses could be transmitted to humans, White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci told lawmakers Tuesday (May 25, 2021).
  • Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), told a House Appropriations subcommittee that the money was funneled to the Chinese lab through the non-profit EcoHealth Alliance to fund “a modest collaboration with very respectable Chinese scientists who were world experts on coronavirus.”
  • But Fauci emphatically denied that the money went toward so-called “gain of function” research, which he described as “taking a virus that could infect humans and making it either more transmissible and/or pathogenic for humans.”
